I realised after a few emails that I didn't update after starting back at work. I only worked 5 1/2 hours on Tuesday and then worked 5 hours on Wednesday. The boss came in to see me towards the end of the shift to ask if I could do the evening shift as well. So I ended up working from 5 till nearly 9. I raced home for an hour and organised the kids and dinner and then Jason and I passed each other on the way out.
I was exhausted the next day. Every muscle in my legs ached as it's a very physical job. Boy though it was so nice to be back. Felt good doing something really normal and not hospital related.
I am off to MIL's tomorrow for a family day. I came home from the party today and made Tandoori Chicken, Butter Chicken (both marinating now), half prepared a carrot salad and will finish all off tomorrow to take over for the day. Wendy, Daryl and Meg's will be there. Adam and Kathy can't make it. Looking forward to spending the day with them. Meg is growing up so so fast. Chatters constantly and loves playing with her cousins Kady and Leah.
Tuesday, I am back to the hospital. I have my Oncology three month check up. Yes it's been three months since chemo. Can't believe how fast the time has gone. I am feeling really good but will push for a full body scan as I haven't had one and it's playing on my mind. I will pay for it myself if need be. It's about $800 but it will give me peace of mind.
I am healing well from radiotherapy. The top part of my boob peeled last week and today I noticed that all over I seem to be loosing the top layer of skin. It isn't really sore at all except for where my nipple is peeling (that is a little tender). I know too much info but it's the truth.
I have so much energy these days. When I feel tired it's self inflicted from a late night. Feeling so good and loving life but feeling a little sad still. Missing my Nan like crazy and so often feel like ringing her only to realise that I no longer can. I feel her with me each and every day and will always treasure our chats. Tell your loved ones how much you love them.
Wednesday I am working one shift. Leah has a school excursion to the Melbourne Museum.
Thursday is my birthday. I will be 38. Only feels like yesterday that I was a little girl. My good friend Paula is taking me out for lunch. Looking forward to a girlie day. Thursday evening we are going out locally for a meal.
